You need to run triangle away, reboot straight to download mode and flash back to stock, after that reboot straight into recovery and do a factory reset. Those are the steps if I'm not mistaken
do you mean a picture of my download mode screen? basically, this is what it says (I guess typing it out is better, since the words are very small anyways)
product name: SGH-M919
current binary: custom
system status: custom
Write protection: enable
and then there's the big green android, and "downloading.. do not turn off target" under it.
I don't think I have the knox bootloader, because I never upgraded to 4.3. I was always using 4.2.2 android before I flashed a custom rom, and I also don't have the two knox lines showing up. I'm guessing I'm fine as long as I can revert back to original stock and get my phone to stop showing "custom"
I first flashed the stock rom with Odin, then I used triangle away, and then I factory reset it, which is why I don't understand why it still says "custom" in download mode, because I should be on the stock rom already. If I boot into download mode immediately after I use triangle away, it shows "official samsung," but if I try again later, it reverts back to "custom."
If I follow the steps you mentioned, would flashing the stock rom cause the flash counter to go to 1?
